Ample HIlls Creamery - Disney's BoardWalk

Earlier this month, Ample Hills Creamery, which is based in New York, opened up a shop on Disney's BoardWalk.


We love ice cream, so we were very excited to check out Disney's newest ice cream parlor.  Before we arrived, I did some research on Ample Hills Creamery's website.  On their Frequently Asked Questions page, they state that their ice cream base is gluten free, but their flavors with cookies, cake, and beer are not.  They have at least one dairy free & vegan sorbet available at all their stores.  If you have a nut allergy, they note that they do their best to avoid cross contamination, but caution that their ice cream is not made in a nut free kitchen.

Amorette's Patisserie - Disney Springs

I was so excited when Disney announced that Amorette's Patisserie was opening in the new Town Center neighborhood of Disney Springs in May.  The main reason I was looking forward to visiting this new shop is that they sell gluten friendly cake, and other sweet treats.  You can check out pictures of their beautiful creations on Disney's website here.


After a disappointing experience at The Daily Poutine in Disney Springs last Saturday, we headed to Amorette's Patisserie.  After reading my friend Sarah's review on her blog Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free at WDW, I was not expecting a good experience at Amorette's either.


The Daily Poutine - Disney Springs

Last Saturday, we headed to Disney Springs to have lunch at D-Luxe Burger, but it was closed for a private party when we arrived.  We decided to explore the recently opened Town Center neighborhood of Disney Springs while we waited for D-Luxe Burger to open to the public.


When I saw The Daily Poutine, a quick service restaurant in Town Center, we reconsidered our lunch plans, because my friend Sarah from Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free at WDW had a good experience dining there opening week.  Poutine is a Canadian dish featuring french fries topped with cheese curds and gravy.  The Daily Poutine also offers Latin, Italian, and French-inspired versions of poutine.

D-Luxe Burger - Disney Springs

Yesterday, we had lunch at D-Luxe Burger, which opened in the Town Center neighborhood of Disney Springs last Sunday.


D-Luxe Burger is a quick service restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating.  After you order, you are given a pager to let you know when your food is ready to be picked up.  They currently do not have an allergy-friendly menu, but a chef quickly came out to speak to me about gluten free options.  He told me that any of the burgers could be made gluten free, and the fresh-cut fries are made in dedicated fryers, so they are safe.

Sprinkles - Disney Springs

Earlier today, Town Center officially opened at Disney Springs.  This neighborhood features new retail locations and dining options like Sprinkles Cupcakes and D-Luxe Burger.  More shops and restaurants will be opening in Town Center in the coming months.


As soon as Town Center opened, we headed straight for Sprinkles Cupcakes, which is located across the bridge from Morimoto Asia and Raglan Road.

Christopher's Kitchen - Palm Beach Gardens, Florida

Last weekend, we had lunch at Christopher's Kitchen in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.


Christopher's Kitchen is a great choice for health conscious diners, vegans and vegetarians, because their mission is to serve certified organic plant based cuisine.

Pork Chops Milanese

I have always loved breaded pork chops and chicken cutlets, especially if they are coated in a mixture of bread crumbs and grated cheese before they are fried.


Locally, you can enjoy gluten free Pork Chop alla Milanese at Trattoria al Forno on Disney's BoardWalk, but I prefer the version I make at home.
